Castor Oil has been around for many years and is well recognized for its healing agents but it is also popular in the natural beauty world and I’ve added it to my routines. Below are a few ways that I’ve incorporated castor oil into my routines and how it has helped me.

During the cooler months, I like to use products that will add extra moisture to my hair and skin. I have added Heritage Store’s Castor Oil to my skincare and hair routine. Did you know that castor oil is cold-pressed, pesticide, paraben, and phthalate-free? It is also free of artificial color and fragrance leaving this to be a clean oil with amazing benefits.
How I Use Castor Oil
HAIR: Castor oil is highly moisturizing for your hair. Using castor oil will add shine, help with strengthening your hair and even help create thickness. I’ve been using Heritage Store’s Castor Oil as a hair mask since I tend to have a drier scalp during the wintertime. Doing this mask is very easy. I saturate dried hair in castor oil and sometimes I’ll add sweet almond oil. I’ll let this sit on my hair for about 45 minutes. Then rise and follow my haircare routine. I have noticed adding castor oil to my hair care routine, my hair has been very shiny and silky after straightening it. Keep in mind, this is a thick oil so it will take some time to wash out.
EYEBROWS: I have struggled with my eyebrows. I over-tweezed them as a teenager and now as an adult, I am suffering. For the last couple of years, I have seen many people rave about using castor oil as a way to get fuller brows. I apply Heritage Store’s Castor Oil right before bed. Tip: Apply with a spoolie or a Q Tip and use a small amount, a little goes a long way.
EYELASHES: If you are like me, I tend to forget that our eyelashes need moisture too. Think about it, most of the time we are wearing mascara, false lashes and probably do not moisture our eyelashes. They need love too! I apply Heritage Store’s Castor Oilto help restore the lost moisture. I like to do this at bedtime as well.
I never knew how much I would benefit from using castor oil but I am so happy that I have added castor oil to my daily beauty routine. You can find Heritage Store’s Castor Oil at your local Ulta or Ulta.com.
